Telit and IBM are working together for the industrial internet of things (IIoT) in order to help manufacturers minimize the cost, risk, complexity and lead time in deploying the technology.
The reseller agreement will port Telit’s deviceWISE IoT platform with IBM’s Watson IoT solution. The technology will be used for solutions such as monitoring and control, industrial automation, asset tracking and field service operations.
The combination of the Watson IoT Platform and Telit’s deviceWISE IoT gives users new options for near-instant onboarding of industrial products, systems and assets, and applying advanced analytics, artificial intelligence and application development, the companies said.
Telit’s IoT platform streamlines the process of integrating IIoT devices and applications with a large library of native device drivers and industrial protocols. Telit said this eliminates the need for custom coding and other expensive, time-consuming integration tasks to bring IIoT applications to market quicker. IBM’s Watson IoT platform brings real-time insights to IoT data and AI-based capabilities, including cognitive analysis, machine learning and natural language processing.
“AI makes it easier and faster for manufacturers to aggregate, analyze and act on data from multiple sources,” said Stephan Biller, vice president for offering management, IBM Watson IoT. “Telit’s deviceWISE complements IBM Watson’s AI capabilities, making the two solutions a natural fit that benefit manufacturers and other industrial businesses worldwide.”
